It’s that time of year again....the mirage of a few days of festive fun and relaxation seems so distant, when in front of you lies a long list of presents to buy, evenings are busy with end of term concerts, and packed shopping centre carparks during 37 degree weather brings its own level of dread.
In comes my excuse for some valuable alone time – with my IPad of course! Although it may be sad that a great Saturday night for me now involves online shopping– the idea of a quiet house (after Master 2 is finally asleep), a crisp cold glass of wine and a credit card at the ready, brings me some peace during this crazy time of year.
To make online gift shopping as quick and efficient as possible – I’m a big fan of the ‘one stop shop’ websites. Sites like www.templeandwebster.com.au and www.hardtofind.com.au have gorgeous gifts ideas for the home and beyond, and of course, there is always a gift from www.loveabreak.com.au that would suit a new mummy or busy family in need of a break.
A few clicks and the gifts are on their way, hopefully bringing a smile on Christmas morning to those we love.
So rest easy… the Christmas rush does not have to mean wrestling with heavy shopping bags with toddler in tow or trying to race through the shops on your lunch break - we are definitely in the times where Christmas shopping can be enjoyable!
